    Programme Description

    The Research Master's programme in Biological Sciences is a two-year programme for students with a Dutch Bachelor of Science degree or its equivalent in Biology. Some of the tracks of this Master's programme may also be of interest to students of biomedical sciences, life sciences, physical geography, earth sciences, chemistry, environmental sciences, physics, mathematics and even econometrics.

    Studying Biological Sciences at the University of Amsterdam

    The Research Master's programme in Biological Sciences is closely linked to the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) and the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences (SILS), both founded in 2000.

    The Master's programme in Biological Sciences consists of four tracks:

    • Ecology and Evolution (MSc)
    • General Biology (MSc)
    • Integrative Plant Sciences (MSc)
    • Limnology and Oceanography (MSc)

    Students choose one of the four tracks based on their specific interests and work toward a Master of Science degree in Biological Sciences.

    Ecology and Evolution (MSc)

    Sustaining natural biodiversity and protecting the environment is impossible without extensive knowledge of ecology and evolution. The Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) offers a state-of-the-art Research Master's programme in Ecology and Evolution. The aim of the programme is to promote understanding of

    • the relationships between living organisms
    • the extinction and evolution of species
    • the functioning of ecosystems
    • how organisms live, interact and disperse on earth
